    Rosemead target had a few deluxe crosshairs and bumblebees, one slag (I think), and quite a few EM optimus and voyager grimlocks. No leaders

    Also had a few of the generations scoop/minicon/skywarp figures, no armada starscream though. And one lone cosmos.

    I've seen a few of the AOE line around my area. Kinda glad I'm staying away from movies lines. A lot of the deluxe figures have horrible paint apps. However, besides picking up the voyager and leader Primes (when I see them) for my Optimus collection, the leader class Grimlock might be the only other figure that it my be hard to stay away from. But, overall it's going to be movie figure overkill part 4.

    Target La Mesa: empty pegs for AOE stuff - - and a cart full of unopened AOE Hasbro boxes sitting in a shopping cart just outside of the Transformers row; an AOE drive through perhaps? Lol.

    Got deluxe Scorn today, from reviews I thought he looked pretty cool, I'm pretty disappointed in him... Might just be because I've got me a case of the sad. Dunno. Anyone else not liking him? :l

    Finally saw them at Kmart in Commerce and I'm very disappointed with those deluxes. A couple of BBs, Hounds, Crosshairs, and Strafes. But I just couldn't pay $12.99 even for Strafe.

    Voyagers and leaders prime and Grimlock are nice and will eventually get them once there is a sale. The chrome looks cool. I will wait for the Generation line first.

    Target has absolutely nothing on the shelves--NOTHING!! Everything is in the stockroom.

    It's different for every Target - usually set days of the week. There are some exceptions though. One of my stores gets stock (not toys specifically, but some combination of stock where toys may be included) Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and every other Saturday.

    When they staff tells you every day or any day, they're lying or don't know. These days are relatively stable until the holiday season.

    Target + TRU Pleasant Hill

    Target Pleasant Hill acts like they don't want to bring their AOE stuff out or something. 2 Deluxe (Crosshairs and Bee), and 2 EM Voyager OPs. I'm pretty sure they have tons of it in the back. They just don't want to put on the shelves or are waiting for a reset or something. About 8 Generations Voyagers (Whirl, Rhinox, Springer, etc). That's how barren their TF section is right now.

    TRU on the other hand, has ALL of the AOE stuff, but no Leaders. No MP Grimlock today, no other stores in the area, and none in the system as of yet. Maybe SoCal will have better luck getting these first? Anyone, anyone?
